What to do when it rains?

How to keep young and old occupied when the weather is bad? Here are 5 ideas for when it rains!

1/ The bowling!

First idea on a rainy day: bowling! Ideal with family or friends, play a game at the Fair Play in the Zone d’En Tourre in Castelnaudary.

Six 35-metre lanes, entertainment, music, a billiards area, games for teenagers and adults as well as the broadcasting of sports matches on a giant screen… In short, a good idea to keep yourself busy for a few hours!

2/ Abbey-cathedral of St Papoul

Dive into history! 

A visit to the abbey is an opportunity to meet the Master of Cabestany and his amazing 12th century sculptures, to marvel at the 18th century choir with its baroque ensemble or to enjoy the cloister and its brick columns.

The site guides will give you a cultural booklet telling the whole story of the site and the many events that took place there.

Everything is sheltered…except the gardens!

3/ The Cinema

That’s right! The big screen is always a good solution when it rains! 

With its three large theatres and a rich programme, you’re sure to find a film to your taste!

Moreover, if you want to know more about films or actors, you will find the media library right next door! 

4/ The Lauragais Museum

As you know, cassoulet in Castelnaudary is sacred! 

It was therefore necessary to have an exhibition place to highlight this emblematic dish of the Lauragais. 

Here you can discover the origin of the dish, its different recipes, the history of industrialization and its drifts at the caricature festival! 

In short, a little tour of the Musée du Lauragais is not the end of the beans!

5/ The Pottery NOT

Step through the door of the NOT workshop and discover all the ancestral knowledge of the manufacture of culinary pottery.

The potters will be delighted to welcome you all year round (closed in August) and you can wander through the kiln room, the wheel room, the drying room upstairs or the exhibition/sales area to take home something to cook with or decorate your kitchen with!
